While we regularly receive praise for our catalog of unique and colorful products, we know there are legions of uninteresting but dutiful lab supplies that lab managers scour for every day in search of better deals.
Admittedly, it is difficult to get inspired by autoclave bags and sharps containers, but we thought it might be fun to create a Top Five list of the most banal lab supply products we offer and rank them based on search inquiries and sales history.
Pipette racks – Everyone needs a place to store their serological pipettes. We have pipette storage racks in colorful ABS plastic and durable acrylic .
Autoclave bags – We’ve got autoclave and bio-hazard bags in many sizes and available in clear or red.
Lab timers – We have the very desirable four-place lab timer and a three-place lab timer. Great
for keeping track of multiple activities at once. We use them to track who
takes the longest shower in our house (I am not thrilled to report it is over
Transfer Pipettes – As dull as they come, transfer pipettes still rank high on the list of lab supplies in demand. We have a nice assortment of transfer
pipettes for research and clinical labs that also work great in the cannabis dispensary
and toy markets too. My youngest
recently got a Barbie® nail salon that came with pipettes. Too bad it wasn’t a STEM Barbie®. I guess that
is asking a lot.
Wash bottles – Our GHS compliant wash bottles can be
purchased in packs of five; Methanol, Ethanol, Acetone, Isopropyl and Distilled
water, or starter packs of one of each. Based on how they are purchased, we
think of these as the “french-fries” of lab supplies.
There you have it: The Boring Lab Supply Hall of Fame.
